Shen’s thoughts

Posted: October 23, 2007 in Tournaments

Had a bit of a think about stories from sunday tourney, but couldn’t think of any good hands worth describing in detail (I guess if you don’t make a specific note of recording them you won’t remember)

I did think it might be interesting to describe the state of my chip stack and no. of all-in’s throughout the day.

1430hrs: Tourney start – Table 8 (9 tables x 10 players)
– Chip count 1000
– 1 hr till end of rebuys
– Blinds started 25-25 (M=20)
– Played conservatively (not as instructed by Luke) and only played 2 hands !!
– Only 1 all-in and won showdown
– Doubled chip stack to 2400 by break and 5th chip stack on table
– Bought top-up

1600hrs: Restart – Table 8 (9 tables left)
– Chip count 3400
– Equal 4th on table chip stack (chip lead ~7000)
– Blinds 100-200 (M=11)
– Still playing conservatively, no all-in’s
– Chip count 6500 when table carved up and left as 2nd chip stack on table

1715hrs: New Table – Table 2 (6 tables left)
– Chip count 6500
– Joined as equal 3rd on table chip stack (chip lead ~12000)
– Blinds 300-600 (M=7)
– Played a bit more aggressively, lots of low chip stacks
– 3 all-in’s, won 1 showdown
– Chip count 11000 when table carved up and left as 2nd chip stack on table

1815hrs: New table – Table 4 (4 tables left)
– Chip count 11000
– Joined as equal 4th on table chip stack (chip lead ~22000)
– Blinds 600-1200 (M=6)
– Played fairly aggresively, again 50% low chip stacks
– 5 all-in’s, won 3 showdowns
– Last showdown won a race with AJo vs 55, 23000 all-in pre-flop as 3nd chip stack vs 22000 4th chip stack
– Chip count 45000 when table carved up and left as chip lead on table

1930hrs: Stage 3 – Final Table (9 players total)
– chip count 45000
– Equal chip lead (~chip stack distribution 1&2=45000, 3&4=40000, 5=30000, 6=25000, 7=15000, 8=10000, 9=5000)
– Blinds 2000-4000 (M=7.5)
– Playing super aggressive for me
– No idea how many all-in’s, but won 1 significant showdown against 30000 chip stack
– Lost in 3rd place, Blinds at 6000-12000 when left table @ 2030hrs
